Latest update from the President

November 20, 2020 - 3:30 p.m.

Yesterday the Provincial Health Officer asked British Columbians to make some changes to our behaviours in an effort to flatten the COVID-19 curve once again. Many of her recommendations and orders focused on asking people to take greater individual responsibility for their actions such as not socializing in person beyond your household, wearing masks, and avoiding non-essential travel. More information regarding yesterday’s announcement can be found on the Government of B.C. COVID-19 website.

I also ask that you remember that when we make decisions regarding UNBC’s response to COVID-19, we do so following the guidance of public health experts such as Dr. Bonnie Henry, as well as that of public health agencies and various provincial government ministries. We are not alone in our decision making; the post-secondary sector in B.C. works closely with the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills, and Training to review the new Orders as they relate to the post-secondary sector so that we maintain a consistent approach in our response.??

In today’s update:

  • Masks
  • Working remotely
  • Travel
